I know, I know, they never feel that way and I mostly hate them and it's always so frustrating to not be able to do the workout to the fullest, but yesterday I had a bad day (day before the magic thing that is a period) and I had this chocolate ... Read more

I think I overtrained. I was sick with cold, then sick with stomach bug, then had to move to another country and then got tonsillitis, as a result I didn't run for almost two months. And usually if I'm forced to skip running for that long time, ... Read more
